Lovely piece on Ed Ruscha implementing a Street View-style project way before Google was even a glimmer in Larry and Sergey's eyes (probably before they were born, in fact.) By Rob Walker for Design Observer.

Love the term "cargo cult," that is to copy something without truly understanding what it is you're copying... and ending up with something hollow and superficial as a result. Good term to think about in the context of innovation.

Photographer Joao Silva is so inspirational, already back in action after losing his legs in Afghanistan. This line: "Although Mr. Silva can walk, he still needs a cane, which he holds in his right hand. When he wants to shoot, he must transfer the cane to his left arm so he can pick up the camera" reads like a challenge. Can't a designer create a cane (or alternative support system) that Silva can use and yet retain the ability to photograph on the fly?
